Bite-Size Session: Driving up Quality in Domestic Retrofit – the Each Home Counts review, Trustmark and the new PAS 2035 standard

Join architect and retrofit risk management specialist Dr Peter Rickaby for an update on the Each Home Counts review and PAS 2035. Hosted by Sheppard Robson architects, this is also a great chance to network and meet like-minded individuals.

This talk was extremely popular when held recently in London – book now to secure your place!

Since the scrapping of the Green Deal, large numbers of poor-quality installations of domestic retrofit measures, and a few high-profile disasters, have led to a collapse of confidence in the industry, for Government and consumers.  It became clear that measures installed under the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) are under-funded, and that the early versions of the installation standard PAS 2030 were not fit for purpose.

Government’s response has been to promote the industry-led Each Home Counts review, which is now being implemented.  Key mechanisms are the forthcoming requirement for all ECO-funded installations to be subject to the TrustMark quality assurance scheme and to comply with the new domestic retrofit standard PAS 2035.

In this Bite-Size session, architect and retrofit risk management specialist Dr Peter Rickaby will present his work on the Each Home Counts review and on PAS 2035.  Peter will cover:

  • Recent failures and defects in domestic retrofit
  • The Each Home Counts review – objectives, recommendations and implementation
  • The Trustmark quality assurance scheme, including the Customer Charter and the Code of Conduct
  • The BSI Retrofit Standards Task Group and the Retrofit Standards Framework
  • The new technical standards – PAS 2035 and the updated PAS 2030
  • The move away from ‘competence’ and towards qualifications, in the retrofit industry
  • The transition to the new regime (by November 2020) and the proposed pilots
  • The importance of TrustMark being adopted in all housing sectors (not just for ECO)
